Having read some of the earlier reviews, I checked the cancellation Ts&Cs before departure. I'm glad we couldn't cancel - this place had (almost) everything we needed. We had a superior unit, which was lovely. Had two bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus fully equipped kitchen,...More

Having read reviews was a little hesitant to stay. But very glad we did. Positive location is perfect and the pool temperature was the same. Decent size spa which was hot. We stayed in a two bedroom superior room which had everything you could think...More

Took advantage of a three night deal and upgraded to a two bedroom apartment overlooking the pool. The apartment was well configured and the stay was very relaxing. The apartments are walking distance to the town and marina. Could have stayed longer.

We will hope to have you with us for longer next visit Peter. The three night deals are fabulous value... we'll always offer extra nights should you wish. Thank you for staying with us and for sharing your relaxing experience. Kind regards, Leanne

We purchased a voucher for our three night stay in a 2-bedroom apartment at Mantra Aqua and, although our balcony overlooked bushland and not the swimming pool area, we found the view relaxing and fairly quiet. Being our second stay at Aqua, we knew what...More

We spent 10 nights here over the Easter holiday. We booked the Superior 2 bed 2 bath apartment. Initial impression when driving into resort is that it looks like an old fashioned holiday camp. The apartment we were shown to was a disgrace. It was...More
